Nutcracker Grandmother’s Fan

This was originally posted over at Suture for a Living on May 21, 2010.


This quilt was made for my niece, Kerina, back in 1995. A lovely child and a lovely young woman. Check out her website: Makeup By Kerina.

The quilt uses the grandmother’s fan block done using Christmas fabric/colors. I pieced the quilt, but had Scottie Brooks do the hand quilting for me. The quilt measures 72 in X 90 in.

As with my first quilt, I failed to take photos, but Kerina sent these to me. It turned out to be an “in-between” size as twin quilts are usually 65 in x 88 in and double bed-size quilts are 80 in X 88 in.

Here you can see the Nutcrackers which give the quilt it’s name.

Here is a view of the back which shows some of Scottie’s beautiful quilting.

    This is such a pretty pattern and I love the way you’ve put it into plain white surround. So effective.
